A palette of gold, cream, black and silver dominated the collection. A few red and purple gowns were a bright contrast and sure to be picked up for award shows. This presentation also had what was clearly the requisite fall 2014 accessory of fur in the form of boleros and collars. The hair was slicked back and short. It was more a look of power and sensuality on a grown woman's terms as opposed to girly femininity in a traditional sense.
Don't let the skin-baring, body conscious silhouettes intimidate you. A collection like this shows how women are great at designing for women. The embroideries, the strategic draping and style lines are all there in a show of smoke and mirrors. Much of the embellishments are there to direct the eye to the curves you want to show off. Well placed pleats are there to disguise bumps in the stomach or hips. There were a few day looks that had a reversed arched neckline to served to make the neck look slender and slim the shoulders too.
Reem Acra designs for the Goddess you know you really are.
